Salads drinks & pizza’s
Our daughter just began at Penn Vet & we were celebrating her journey to be a Veterinarian since she was 3!
Love the service and food❤️
I just love the quality of fresh pasta and the service too boot!
Favorite local restaurant. Best outdoor space. Salads are great. Pizza dough is best in City!
Zach was awesome. We were celebrating a friend and he helped everyone to get what they wanted and did a great job with our cake that we brought in etc. The food was delicious!
The service was exceptional. The food was delicious and the ambiance was on point. Great for a date night or catching up with friends. I will definitely be going back sooner than later!
As is the usual the food is consistently tasty the service and servers are friendly accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu items. And you can’t beat happy hour. Check it out.
Service was not great! Waited approx 15 minutes before having to talk to someone to have them take our order. No one even looked in our direction. Very disappointing
Reliably good pizza. Quick service. Accommodating. The ribs and octopus were also great. Pours of wine were very low, like, had to be like less than 5oz? :-(
Great night outside enjoying an outstanding food frenzy, with best buds!
Wife and I tried this place for the first time and the food was great. Will definitely go again.
Excellent food, prepared swiftly. The acoustics are a little loud. Vaccine card check much appreciated. Friendly helpful service.
Nice to sit outside on a Friday evening. The server was friendly and attentive. The food was great. Try the grilled octopus!
Great food and fun, urban ambiance. Appreciated the fun atmosphere but relaxed service - we never felt rushed.
The flavors of the food were great but the portion size of the pasta was too small. I was sharing this with one other person and we only had about 2 forkfuls each.
Excellent food, beautiful outdoor patio across from the water, great service!
There were 4 adults & a baby in my party. Maybe I shouldn't mention the the gnat in one of our watered down drinks because that's nature but that was our 1st impression. The menu was different and very intriguing, unfortunately the food didn't live up to our expectations.
Two of our meals didn't come out until everyone else has almost finished their meals. The waitress was very nice & apologetic but failed to remove the cost of meatballs from our bill after she was notified that they had shards of gristle in them that appeared sand-like. It seemed like a really popular spot because people kept flocking in for the indoor & outdoor seating.
Maybe we just caught them on a bad day, waitress said they were short staffed so I'll take her word for it!
We had another great meal at In Riva. Theo portions are on the smaller side yet the food was plentiful.
Nice location. The pizzas were overly cheesy and relatively undercooked and incredibly salty. Appetizers were okay but not cohesive and could have been prepared and cooked a little better
Love returning to a favorite…. Doesn’t disappoint!
Great meal, as usual
In Riva is my daughters favorite restaurant and she is home for a week so we had to go! Their food and and service is consistently great. I love they are requiring vaccines to eat inside- it’s nice to feel safe dining out!
Absolutely lovely experience a In Riva! The service was attentive without being food itself was delicious and rather reasonably priced. We had the eggplant fritti and charred octopus for appetizers which we absolutely fantastic. The octopus was surprisingly tender with a nice crispy exterior. We shared a mushroom and zucchini pizza for the table which was just fantastic. My mom and I had pasta dishes, both which were cooked to al dente perfection with really nice flavors (mine was a bit salty but I like less salt than most people) and my dad had a salad. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
Quick note about parking: they do have a small lot which was extremely full, I was lucky to get a spot but it took some acrobatics to navigate the lot.
Wonderful spot next to the river with fabulous food and great service! We came for our anniversary and then again when our daughter came to visit from NYC. The staff was very accommodating when we asked to move to a table with a better view of the Schuulkill River. My daughter LOVED the whipped ricotta appetizer, and the brick oven pizzas are amazing! My drink, the Vivianni, was the perfect summer cocktail. A walk along the river afterwards, is the perfect ending to a great meal at In Riva! I'd like to keep this place a secret, but that would just be selfish, so go try it, people. You'll be glad you did!
The worst service we have ever had! And so embarrassed as we had brought guests there as a treat! Every possible service problem existed. No follow up. 3 servers working our table but with none following up. Even after i expressed concern to the hostess. About the service…and she said they were not understaffed , service continued to be horrendous. appetizer sent back to remove meat from a cheese platter. That took 15 minutes! Begged repeatedly for water. Begged for a second round of drinks. Begged for condiments that never came. No checks on the entrees. No offer of desserts. Begged for the check.
Terrific pizza and best broccolini cesar in the city!
We love to stop here on the way home from the airport— and otherwise!
Delicious food and always very quick!
This is our second time eating at In Riva. Food is outstanding and service was lots better the second time. Broccolini Caesar salad is amazing. Pizza and pasta is also great. We’ll return.
Always a great time going to In Riva. Service was excellent. They spaced out tables and food runners wore masks. Their outside patio has great views of the water and Kelly drive. They have an excellent vegan pizza (not on menus but available if you ask). The drink service was quick and delicious. Can’t wait to go back!
Great menu choices. Awesome food, service and atmosphere!
We enjoyed ourselves at our first visit to In Riva.
Perhaps the only carp that I have is that I expect slightly larger portions at an Italian restaurant. The rigatoni was very tasty, but I left wanting more.
As always, In Riva was amazing. The food is reliably excellent, the atmosphere on the patio is lovely: perfect for a date night, happy hour, or even an early dinner with toddlers. The zucchini mushroom pizza and broccollini caesar are my top faves but everything is delicious.
Took a dear friend there for her birthday. Our wait person, Rebekah, was very good. Support staff, on the other hand, lacked finesse and skill and courtesy. Food is always reliably delicious, but cocktails lacked enough liquor to enjoy. Drinks and soup were spilled. Quite embarrassing for a special occasion!
This was our second time at the restaurant and the food was as outstanding as our first visit! Truly delicious and we look forward to going back again soon.
This is a great place and the food is always excellent.
Amazing as always! Spicy ham pizza and chicken parm are two of our favorite dishes and never disappoint. We were a little sad that they no longer have the chickpea starter but otherwise it was a great meal as it typically is. In Riva is one of our favorite restaurants in the city!
Ate so many small plates as appetizers that we didn’t even get to our favorites: pizza and pasta. Amazing every time and an iconic, unassuming neighborhood gem.
Never a disappointment!
Always a great experience. V was our server and she did a great job.
